Pumpkin carved. OMG, Halloween is exhausting.
Now, who's crafty? How the heck am I going to get feathers on a shirt without a hot glue gun? I have two long feather boas and a green shirt that somehow I am supposed to make look like a bird. - Laura Norvig
Rebuild shirt out of duck tape? Overlap so sticky side is mostly out? Elmer's glue will work for a bit but you'll shed and it's water soluble if anyone spills. - Hedgehog
Sewing. Feather boas have a string interior. Locate that and stitch it to the shirt in strategic places. This is by hand sewing, not machine sewing. - Spidra Webster
Jeffy says tie strips of the feather boa to a string or wire and then use binder clips to clip it to his sleeve and collar. I was thinking glue strands of boa to a thin strip of cardboard and duct tape the whole thing to the sleeves. - Laura Norvig
Spidra, I can't sew for shit. I think I have some needles - not sure where the thread is ... - Laura Norvig
This kind isn't very exacting so as long as you can go up & down and tie a knot, you're good. - Spidra Webster
that might be the thing to do, actually. I just dread sewing in general ... - Laura Norvig
There's very little that can go wrong in this case. You're not sewing in a tailored way. You're not sewing for the good looks of the stitches. You're just trying to hold one object to another object. And hand sewing can be unpicked and redone far more easily than machine sewing so even if you make a mistake, it's easier to fix. - Spidra Webster
I found a travel sewing kit! Let's get this party started. I need something good to watch while I labor ... - Laura Norvig
Cristo, I do have some Duco cement but I'm not sure how that would work with fabric. - Laura Norvig
^^ate too much glue as a child^^ - Laura Norvig
First you start with a horse... This is a good site to learn which glues to use for what materials: - Spidra Webster
Hmm. That was a fun two hours. At least I only stuck myself with a needle once or twice, gently. - Laura Norvig from iPhone

Oakland chief filtered out Occupy e-mail - SFGate -
Oakland chief filtered out Occupy e-mail - SFGate
"People who've e-mailed Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan over the past year about Occupy Oakland probably didn't get much of a response. That's because he used a spam filter to dismiss messages sent to him with "Occupy Oakland" in the subject line, according to a federal court filing Monday. Same goes for the phrases "stop the excessive police force," "respect the press pass" or "police brutality." Instead of landing in his in-box, those messages went straight into his junk mail folder, which he apparently never looked at. Because of those filters, Jordan missed e-mails from other city officials and a federal court monitor, who oversees the department's compliance with court-ordered reforms stemming from a police abuse scandal. Robert Warshaw, the monitor, had sent Jordan an e-mail with the subject line "Disciplinary Actions-Occupy Oakland." Jordan told the court on Oct. 18 that he never saw those e-mails, infuriating Thelton Henderson, the federal judge in San Francisco who... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

What's that person's FriendFeed username, Lnor? - Ha3rvey (on hiatus)
Kudos to Instructor for rolling with that one. Chick has got a poker face bar none. I may have fell in love with her a little bit right then. I'm getting called out for using my phone -To look up a /Pyrrhic victory/ - and that dumb as fuck girl is asking abt pro and con. There's lower level English classes for that right? Ugh. - Lnorigb from FFHound!
I'm still upset about this. I got to look up w new words today cos this English class is awesome challenging. THREE new words in one article. Facile. Pyrrhic. And aphorism. And that woman is asking about whats pro and con. Wrt the same article. I HAVE NO PATIENCE FOR THIS. - Lnorigb from FFHound!

Improve FriendFeed for your friends by recommending subscriptions - FriendFeed Blog
"As a devoted FriendFeed user, I have tried to convince all of my friends and family to join the site, but a handful of them never quite got their accounts set up properly. With our new Recommend friends feature, I can fix their FriendFeed experience by recommending subscriptions to them." Try it out at - Bret Taylor from Bookmarklet
Excellent feature, gooood idea! - Susan Beebe
Very cool =) - FFing Enigma
Cool stuff. - Mike Bracco
Uh, it tells me that Scoble, among others, could use the recommendations. WTF? Perhaps I have too few subscriptions for this to work. - Fred Yankowski
more good stuff - Dobromir Hadzhiev
Finally a better recommendation - directeur
I'd still love an "e-mail this item" feature, similar to Google Reader. - Jesse Stay
great idea! - Edwin Khodabakchian
Cool! Beats the heck out of #followfriday!! - Larry Hawes
What am I supposed to get when I click the 'recommend friends' link on someone's pop-up? Currently, the popup just goes away and I don't get directed anywhere else. - FFing Enigma
Fred: yah, unfortunately, you can only recommend people who you are subscribed you and who are also subscribed back to you. - Bret Taylor
Mark, I didn't submit a bug report since what is supposed to happen wasn't actually spelled out on the blog post or here; this might be the intended functionality... I hope not, but it's possible. - FFing Enigma
Tina: it is supposed to pop up a dialog. Sorry for the trouble - we will look into it. - Bret Taylor
At first I did not understand this, but now that I am checking it out, it is brilliant and addresses much of what we have complained about. NOW what will we complain about? - Liza + = ?
Just to confirm Bret, the first image in the blog post is what the pop up is supposed to look like, right? Because that's nothing like what the page looks like.... - FFing Enigma
I notice that new subscriptions are automatically added to one's home feed. I consider that kind of a bug. - Meryn Stol
Tina: yes, that is correct. The page is just a list of people that we think could use some friend recommendations since they have few subscriptions. If you click on any of the "Recommend" links on that page, you will see the same, standard "Recommend friends" dialog. - Bret Taylor
User-driven...I like. - Josh Haley
Where would we find recommendations that others suggest to us? - Fred Yankowski
@Bret, who receive the recommandation see also who is the recommender? - Roberto
Fred: You will receive an email as well as a notification on the top of your feed. - Ross Miller
Roberto: yes, they see who recommended - Bret Taylor
Not getting the pop-over when I click 'recommend' on the page either... FFox 3.0.12 if it's relevant. - FFing Enigma
Bret, if I recommend friends to people who haven't signed in for a long time, will they get email? A lot of my bored friends are not active FF users I think. (quite logical) - Meryn Stol
and can I see who has accepted my recommendation? - Roberto
Roberto: You won't be notified if they accept/deny as the recommender. - Ross Miller
Ross: Ah, it just appeared on my feed. Cool. (And thanks Meryn) - Fred Yankowski
Meryn: yes, they will get an email with your recommendations - Bret Taylor from email
Bret, I accidently just received an email with previous recommendations. I had already viewed them through the web-interface. But indeed, it's there. Email looks good too, as I expected of course. :) - Meryn Stol
hey Robert Scoble....I have a trade send my name to all your friends...i send your name to all of my friends for the rest of my life.... - Bob DeMarco
I would like that deal, too, Scoble. I like this a lot. - Ben Hanten
Bob: I charge $1 per friend. :-) just kidding, but the UI makes it so hard to send you to more than a few people. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Bret: You guys rock! This is so much better than FollowFriday, which I recommended just a while back. Now, I'm waiting for some recommendation emails! :) - Mahendra (SkepticGeek)
If there’s something about friends and family not having their account set up properly, I’d prefer a way to recommend them the streams they forgot to add. For example, I could tell them “You forgot to add your Digg stream and your fourth and eight blog. Here’s the link.” Then he could just click the recommendation and had it set up easily. - Natsuki Seika
Definitely better than #followfriday. - Bernie Goldbach
As I have lots of subscriptions the pop-up window is *really* slow and always has been since the new UI (same thing for amending friends lists). :-( I like the feature though, so I could make a new friends list of my most recommended users and use that each time for each user? - Kol Tregaskes

Rustling through the cheese drawer and finding a block of cheese with mold on it that has a sell by by date over a month away from now. I am not pleased. I was going to use that cheese tomorrow with my dinner. >.<
The cheese was still in it's original wrapper. I hadn't used it at all. - Katy S
If it is a hard cheese, you can cut off the moldy parts and use the rest. - Friar Will
Will - The green appeared to be fairly pervasive. There were big spots on all sides of it. It didn't seem worth it to try to chop it off at that point. I'm just annoyed b/c 1) it's a waste of food, and 2) I was just at the grocery today and I could have picked up more. - Katy S
I certainly understand your annoyance. - Friar Will
Return it to the store. - Anne Bouey
Anne - I thought of that after I took out the trash. :( So, I went back today to get more cheese, and they had some labeled sell by November 2012 that had a big green mold spot. I let an employee know about that (nicely, of course). Now I don't feel good about buying cheese there, though. - Katy S
Ooof, definitely not. Looks like their food storage isn't at the right temperature. I'm guessing some places are having trouble with the heat, and haven't' adjusted their refrigeration. - Jennifer Dittrich

Reading a lot of theorycrafting for WoW—while I know this sounds hyperbolic—I've started to feel that trying to design a relatively balanced game for millions of people really does have similarities to creating economic and social policy for a just society. The only significant difference is the magnitude of the stakes.
It's game theory and social engineering. Whether you're designing rules for an MMO or crafting legislation, you still have to keep in mind how people are going to react to it, and you still have to satisfy the demand for fairness that actually seems to be innate within (most) human beings. - Victor Ganata
Of course, there's a huge difference between whether characters die in-game or people die IRL. Like I said, the difference is in the magnitude of the stakes. - Victor Ganata
